Setting up an ODBC driver

We have a problem with DECS and ODBC. Our server Notes are on NT4 and the database we want to connect to is on AS400. When we create the connection document, we cannot access the database and we have the following errors: "Connector 'odbc2', method -Connect- (101)" but our ODBC driver exists and work fine with Excel or other applications. Thanks for your help.
For most desktop applications setting up an ODBC driver is fairly straight forward and fool-proof. However, when it comes to getting LEI and ODBC drivers talking you must be careful to properly configure the driver during setup. Make sure the ODBC driver is defined as a System DSN and not a User DSN. Test the new configuration from an SQL tool and then test it using the nlctest.exe program in your LEI programs directory. This should resolve the problem and allow your LEI Activities to talk with the DB400 database.
